Making Quizlet Run Really Fast: Rapid Root-Cause Analysis with Monitoring and Analytics Tools
Tuesday, April 17, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Join us for a presentation from Andrew Sutherland, the Founder and CTO of Quizlet: "Making Quizlet Run Really Fast: Rapid Root-Cause Analysis with Monitoring and Analytics Tools"
Andrew will discuss how Quizlet - the largest independent study site in the U.S. uses application monitoring and performance tools New Relic and Joyent Cloud Analytics (with DTrace) in combination to monitor Web applications in development and production environments. With these tools, Quizlet has dramatically reduced time spent chasing bugs and establishing root-cause of performance bottlenecks.
Andrew started Quizlet in 2005 to help study for a French vocab test. He was a high-school sophomore. Today Quizlet is the largest independent study site in the U.S. with 42 million visitors over the past year. Users can make their own flashcards or choose from millions of flashcards created by others to study for standardized tests, foreign language, science or math.
Some form of enticing edible (pizza, tacos, Thai food) will be provided along with adult beverages (beer and wine).
